Ahmed’s passion for German VW cars started from childhood when he used to buy car magazines and put pictures of cars on the walls of his room. He was fond of MK1 VW Golf in particular, but now he is competing for the Volkswagen superstar with Passat R36.
When he got his first job in 2002 after graduating from college Ahmed bought a Rabbit Cabriolet MK1 equipped with a 1.8-liter BB engine, and when he arrived in the UAE in 2006 he fulfilled his dream of owning a GTI.
But as a married man with children, he needed a car equipped with a V6 engine to suit his daily commutes, so he looked for a family car that is also sporty t, and chose Volkswagen Passat R36 equipped with a VR6 engine, and later he made some minor modifications; MRC Stage 1 gearbox, and a Racing Filter.
Ahmed is an active member of VW Group Abu Dhabi, and is known for his nickname “Rigo”. He also participates in Volkswagen DUB Drive in GCC.
